Define Visibility for a Widget

Use the Dashboard Editor to define when to display or hide a Widget (Visibility). For example, display an SLA Widget on a Dashboard. When an SLA is in jeopardy of being breached, display a warning message (expression-driven visibility). By default, a Widget is always visible, unless defined (through an Expression) to be hidden.

Good to know:

To define visibility for a Widget:

  1. Open a Dashboard in the Dashboard Editor
  2. Click a Widget.
  3. Click the drop-down arrow on the Visibility button Control Visibility Button, and then select one of the following options:
    • Custom Expression: Select this option to open the Custom Expression Builder, and then create a custom Expression to use only for this scenario.
    • Expression Manager: Select this option to open the Expression Manager, and then select an existing stored Expression or create a new stored Expression to use. Stored Expressions can be reused in numerous places in CSM.
    • Clear Visibility Expression: Clears any visibility Expression so that the Widget is always visible.
  4. Continue making changes, or click OK to save and close the editor.
